The last day to return ballots for the Kent School District levies is Tuesday, Feb. 11.

King County Elections has received about 160,000 ballots countywide to date out of more than 630,000 sent to voters for special elections in 18 jurisdictions. This is the largest special election in King County since 2010.

Voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to return ballots to a drop-off location or Accessible Voting Center. Voters who are mailing ballots need to remember to affix a first class (49 cent) stamp and ensure that the mail will be postmarked Tuesday. Ballots arriving with a postmark later than election day, by law, will not be opened.

King County Elections forecast a 38 percent turnout. Eighteen jurisdictions, including 16 school districts, have a total of 33 measures on ballots this election. For more information go to kingcounty.gov/elections.
